That's horrible. I just don't understand how they hit head on.

I guess maybe someone went off their part of the track and on to another part traveling in the opposite direction.

Terrible to hear of.
Reminds me of many years ago, when a young boy on my paper route was going the wrong way on the motocross track, and had a head on with the brother of the parts guy at the Honda dealership I always dealt with.
The parts guy was never the same.
The young boy was never the same.

Very sad to hear.

Saw him interviewed on TV after a success in the British series last season, and he was just busting out all over, so happy and and lively and enthusiastic.

Tragic outcome, sympathies to all those close to him.
